You can make your own homeade soap, face mask or lip gloss with these recipes.
How To Make Soap

Funky face-masks, smashing soaps and lovely lip-glosses are awesome products but they can be really expensive. If you aren't afraid to get your hands dirty, Kidzworld has a fun way for you to get the goods this summer without the high costs.

You can make all these products at home if you have the right ingredients. These recipes are fun, easy and cheap to make... and make rad gifts for your friends.

Follow these directions to make some dope soap:

Materials:

  • Bars of natural fragrance or color free soap
  • Essential oils of your choice
    (Lavender, rose and jasmine work well)
  • Food coloring
  • Oats
  • Vitamin E Oil (Optional)
  • Almond Oil

Instructions:

1) Grate soap in a blender or food processor.
2) Boil a pot of water and put a glass bowl over the pot, (like a double boiler.)
3) Add some almond oil into the bowl.
4) Add the soap into the bowl.
5) Take the water from the pot and add it into the bowl until soap changes into paste.
6) Add oils, color, and vitamin E as desired.
7) Let cool in molds of your choice. You can use anything for a mold - ice cube trays, cookie cutters or your own hand. (To make hand soap, flatten soap paste to approximately 1/4 inch. Trace your hand on to the surface of the paste and mold accordingly. Finish by writing "hand soap.")
8) Air out on wax paper for a day or two.

Experiment! Make different shapes of soap or don't mix the color all the way in. Oats are great for exfoliating. Lavender pieces and rose petals can sometimes mold or rot if you don't air the soap out properly, so be careful. Your utensils should not be used for food afterwards but if you need to, wash very thoroughly.

Hi Jaera!      sisihastwobunnies is right. It's perfectly fine for you to have a crush, but you're a little young for a "love life." Don't worry though! Someday, if it's meant to be (Ha ^-^) you'll find the one who's just right for you. Until then, it's great to have good guy friends -and in years to come if one of those friendships develop into something more, then props to you (:  Future advice: You have to understand that feelings aren't always mutual. You may like someone and they'll see you only as a friend -or vice versa.  THIS IS OKAY.  It may hurt, but that's just proof that you'll have to move on. Something better is ahead,  you simply haven't gotten there yet (: Having patience can be hard, but it's worth it. Good luck! -And I hoped this helped!                                    Wishing you the best,                                             american_brit ^-^
